Andy and I finished up our salt-dough world map today. It took FOREVER for the stoopid dough to dry enough for us to paint it. This map is purely topographical. Andy did most of the work himself and I think he did an awesome job. If you need to find a tundra, Andy is your go-to guy.
Over the summer, I shared my idea of using cardboard “bankers” boxes – painted to match your decor. After a full school-year of hard-use, our boxes held up well. Andy’s box is nearly dead. The other boxes sill look pretty good and are serving their purpose. The supply boxes have held up really well. The boys’ school boxes are definitely worse-for-the-wear. But, overall, it was was $12 (and some leftover paint) well spent! (Just in case you were wondering!)
